Letter: Big Rock Halloween Fest confused with similar event

By on October 20, 2011

“Often imitated; never duplicated,” applies to the Halloween Fest sponsored by Hinckley, Sugar Grove and Big Rock now more than ever. The event, to be held the weekend before Halloween, at Plowman’s Park in Big Rock, 5 to 9:30 p.m. on Oct. 22, is being confused with a very similar sounding event one week later. This confusion was compounded by the village of Sugar Grove bulletin board, which advertised this other event with the following week’s date. Sugar Grove personnel told us that a change in employees had further compounded the problem by not advertising our original event until Wednesday of this week.

We wish to tell our followers that the 22-year-old event will indeed continue with no admission charge, and with the traditional fun that we’re well known for. It is our policy of offering this event to the children without mom or dad having to dig deep into their purse for an evening of good clean fun.
